Windows Phone (WP) is a family of mobile operating systems developed for smartphones as the replacement successor to Windows Mobile and Zune.  Windows Phone features a new user interface derived from Metro design language. Windows 10 Mobile succeeded Windows Phone 8.1 and emphasizes a larger amount of integration and unification with its PC counterpart—including a new, unified application ecosystem, along with an expansion of its scope to include small-screened tablets.

Hello!

The title may surprise you, but there really exists a problem with file writability, if you access on a file modified on a PC over Windows Phone 8.1! Actually, the problem first arose under Windows Phone 7.4, but I later switched to a then new smartphone under Windows Phone 8.0, which I later upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 (it is a NOKIA Lumia 930).

I am using mobile devices to take notes for more than 15 years now. At the beginning, I used Windows CE and later the Windows Mobile 6. With the years passing by, the capabilities of the mobile devices increased, making it possible to enter directly the data into a Microsoft Office document (like Excel) without first making text notices in a TXT file and copying it in another "real" Excel file on the PC later on. But with the above error I am dealing with, I go "back to the old times" and have to copy and paste at home all the notices, if they are meant to be part of an Excel sheet that all-of-a-sudden became read-only.

Actually, I never make the files read-only intentionally. All happens when sometimes adding a column or a new tab when editing the documents over OneDrive in the browser, using Microsoft Excel at home or at business.

I once asked on a site about this problem. One guy – an Excel specialist – told me that the file I attached for scrutiny was including some code that cannot be edited by Windows Phone. So far, so good.

My question is:
  • Is it possible to *cleanse* an Excel file from any

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I signed up at the Microsoft Stream Preview website, using an Personal Microsoft Account ID, not realizing that it was a service meant for Office 365 for Business. Usually Microsoft websites check if the account is a business account or not before accepting he email id. Microsoft Stream, however accepted my Personal Microsoft Account ID and signed me up, classifying the ID as a Business Microsoft ID as it created an Office 65/Azure tenant.

THE PROBLEM THAT THAT CREATED
Was unable to access mails at outlook.com which came up with a something-went-wrong error message when we tried to sign in. A little research on Bing (yes, I am a loyal Microsoft Insider) and I found that the solution was to switch my primary e-mail id with an alias.

WHAT I AM USING
Lumia 950 with Windows 10 Mobile, Version: 1703 (Build: 10.0.15063.414)
Surface Pro with Windows 10, Version: 1703 (Build: 10.0.15063.413)

WHAT WORKS WHAT DOES NOT
Surface: Everything works with the new primary alias
Mobile:  Mail and People Apps on the Mobile not syncing (Error code: 0x85010014)  Error Message with the new primary alias. Everything else works

WHAT I HAVE TRIED
Deleting and re-adding the Mail/People accounts about 50 times. Tweaking the settings in the Outlook account trying different sync and mail server settings (hotmail/eas). Hard resetting the Mobile as the Apps | Apps & Features | Advanced Options | Reset button is greyed out.

How to debug in Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone with Emulator running?

When breakpoints are set, while running in debug mode with the emulator, we get the message
"The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document.”

The literature on this topic suggests symbols and modules. There is no such thing as modules in 'Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone' or we are missing something. Please suggest!

Also another question: Web Service calls working for Android and iOS - NOT working in Windows Phone 7 emulator. Please suggest any literature on this!

My ASP chart looks great in a browser on a desktop. But when I reduce the screen width, the chart stays the same size and does not resize to the smaller size. When I tried to set the Chart.Width to 100%, the complier said it could only accept pixels. How do I make it responsive?
